Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3453) cassandra.yaml needs a snapshot_directory setting
Date Sat, 05 Nov 2011 03:33:51 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-3453:

but you still have to have it per keyspace, unless you're willing to throw away the information
of what keyspace it came from, which I'm not.

you also need to have it per data_dir since those could be on different volumes, and hard
links won't work cross-volume.

sounds like a pretty limited win to me.

> cassandra.yaml really needs a config option for a snapshot directory. by default it should
be a peer folder with saved_caches, commitlog and data.
> assuming the value of that setting is /some/path/snapshot_dir then snapshots would go
into: /some/path/snapshot_dir/snapshot_name/keyspace_name/
> this makes automation, particularly around backups, much easier and gives more control
to ops
